Enhance your career with a minor in Latin American and Latinx studies.
The minor in Latin American and Latinx studies offers an interdisciplinary approach that allows you to develop a better appreciation for and understanding of multifaceted aspects central to contemporary and past Latin American societies and/or to Latinx communities in the US. You will consider their histories, literatures, and cultural knowledge; identity, Latinidad, and diaspora; systems of power and privilege; the arts—visual, performing, and/or alternative manifestations—as mechanisms to express identity, ideology, or resistance; and socio-political processes, among other topics. Due to its nature, the minor in Latin American and Latinx studies also provides new opportunities for service learning and community engagement. Courses are taught in English unless noted otherwise.
